Designer Candy Chang's 'I Wish This Was' project offers a simple tool to help the residents of New Orleans share their opinions on the state of the city.

Designer Candy Chang has created a simple tool to help the residents of New Orleans share their opinions on the state of the city. She explains:

New Orleans is full of vacant storefronts and people who need things. My neighborhood is still without a full-service grocery store. So I made these fill-in-the-blank stickers to give us an easy tool to voice what we want where we want it. Fill them out and put them on abandoned buildings and beyond. It’s a fun, low-barrier tool for citizens to provide civic input on-site, and the results reflect the hopes, dreams, and colorful imaginations in different neighborhoods. These stickers are free and can be found in corner stores, cafes, bookstores, bars, hair salons, and other places around New Orleans. They’re also waiting for your thoughts on vacant storefronts and blighted houses around the city.
